I have to say I am quite suprised at the result. I may not know a lot about Senior international Epee but I would have thought that Kolobkov and Boisse, both World Champions, would have won the gold and silver.... Obviously I was wrong but all credit to Fischer and Wang.....

Wonder how the Team event will turn out.... any guesses..?

I say France 1
Russia 2
Germany 3

But I am probably wrong....

Well it was a surprise that Wang beat Kolobkov, but Boisse hasn't been world champion and he did rather well to get to 4th. Surprising also that Rota went out in the 16. However, Fischer did come 3rd or 4th last time in Sydney (and is world number 3) so he's pretty good.

Wang had a fantastic day, and the final though pretty one sided on score was brill.

I reckon
1. Russia
2. China
3. Hungary.

With maybe France in there too. Don't think the German's are strong enough. Probably wrong as well!

Fischer dominated Wang throughout...Kolobkov looked tired and Boisse was totally outclassed by the other three.

I watched Boisse's bouts on France 2 and it was very tuoching, seeing as Boisse's father is the commentator, and he was watching his son defeated twice in the semi finals and for the Bronze.

didn't Dudley put Fischer out at the London A Grade a couple of years ago?

Quite possibly. But then Fischer doesn't always win... :)
